Welcome to Liverpool University Press's Opening the Future programme: funding BPC-free open access book publishing while also broadening your own collection through an affordable subscription to closed content.
We're reshaping how knowledge dissemination is funded and accessed, by leveraging the collective contributions of academic libraries worldwide. Your Opening the Future membership funds our press to publish new OA monographs, while your library simultaneously benefits from access to closed content, and no single institution bears a disproportionate burden. For a modest annual fee your library gets DRM-free, unlimited access to a closed-access selection of our backlist, with perpetual access after three years. We use the membership revenue solely to produce new OA monographs, moving towards an affordable, sustainable model for academic publishing and creating a collection of OA books that are open for the world.
Be part of something special. Join over 90 Universities around the world already committed to Opening the Future.
